“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”
~ Anais Nin
The great 20th century French painter, Henri Matisse, is quoted as saying, “It has bothered me all my life that I do not paint like everybody else.” I think it’s safe to say that it’s a good thing he didn’t! I always find this quote quite striking that a truly talented, adored and famous artists as Matisse has shared similar thoughts and fears of sharing his unique gifts with the world. His along with many others’ fear of stepping out from underneath the shaded trees to share your truth, your passion and your gift with the world is not uncommon. However, taking the risk of stepping out and into your own uniqueness will always and only be received with love and light. We all carry unique gifts that the world and universe grants us. Our job is to uncover our talent and share this with the world around us.
In light of May and all the work we’ve highlighted this month on diving into and clearing out our root chakra, let’s take a moment today to celebrate our very own uniqueness allowing for each of us to grow towards our greatest light. The courage and bravery of stepping out resides within you and the first step to this new found growth is celebrating YOU.
